The House is reportedly going to start voting today on issues leading up to a planned vote on fast track tomorrow. I know I’m biased, but I get the sense that Republican Reps realize that fast track is very unpopular with the base. One way you can tell this is by the number of declared and potential GOP presidential candidates who have recently come out against it. In addition, the people who don’t like it REALLY don’t like it, whereas the people who do support it (other than the fat cats) generally support free trade in theory and just see fast track as a means to an end.
Please contact your Representative today and urge him to vote against fast track. I know the oligarchy usually gets it’s way, but if we make our Reps feel enough heat, maybe we can win this one. Shamefully, the Republicans are the ones who are the biggest problem here, so especially pound the phones if your Rep is a yes leaning Republican.
